WIP: Sleeping Chibi Base Coats, Pre-shading & Skulls

Now the painting begins in earnest. Pre-shading & base coats were first!

I used the following colors to base coat & pre-shade the cliff above...
 Next up was the Knight:
Again it looks like a base coat, but there is pre-shading, I swear. The colors below where used...
The dragon was last and his pre-shading shows up best.
These were the colors used:
Finally I got to do some brush work on the skulls.
 There is still some tweaking to do on them, but it a great start to that cartoony look I am trying for with this style of painting!

Next Post: The finished skulls, progress on the knight and a small, but pretty upgrade to the hobby desk. Thanks for surfing by and don't forget to check the blog roll for new blogs. As always questions, comments and critiques are encouraged. Oh and good news, I found another contest to enter this one in. Some one over at C'MON pointed me to a dragon diorama contest over at the Reaper forums! Yay, the pressure is back on -_-  Oh well, you know what I say; you can't spell paint without a little pain ;)


  1. Awesome work, man! Loving watching this come together!

  2. Thanks, me too! Have fun with all those Iron Hands. You'll have it down to an art by the time your HH stuff comes in ;)


By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
